Oil Painting "Tears of Happiness"

I have tried a new technique while creating this painting. First, I started it as an ordinary painting in "a la prima" technique, but noticed that the idea of the painting was not matching it. The idea was deeper. So, I repainted it and made it in two layers: monochrome umber painting and then the color layer. This experience was very interesting to me. Thanks to it I decided to study multi-layer painting technique that old master were using, when they applied many thin layers of oil paints to achieve deep and harmonious painting.

This painting is currently for sale.
